Why certain songs have come and gone from 360

I'm pretty excited to be able to present this info: Where are they now?: Why certain songs have come and gone from 360° - U2gigs.com

Should explain a lot of the more unusual and controversial setlist decisions U2 have made this tour!

It's scary how much of that could actually be true. Especially the IALW part...

It makes me sad that IGWSHA was rehearsed early on for 360 but never used.

I actually don't think it was THAT bad. The rest of the band was pretty good, but Bono's vocals were some of the worst he's ever done live.

You didn't have me past the midpoint of paragraph two, but it was funny all the same

"Larry fortunately shot down Bono's suggestion to replace Moment Of Surrender with a reprise of In A Little While"

This is the only U2-related April Fool's joke I enjoyed.

I got this link on twitter before I got out of bed this morning. Started reading it on the phone and for the first paragraph I thought "Holy Shit, Willie Williams must have contacted Ax and he's got some good info".

The NLOTH thing was a bit rough but kinda believable. Finally at "Bono prancing around in a self-important egotistical" is where I said to myself GTFO, this is horseshit.

Very well done sir
